Sniper Ghost Warrior Steelbook Extended Edition
This is a joke.
While the game itsself was sort of a "flawed gem," on Xbox LIVE the multiplayer is pretty much dead. The game has a solid single player, but with many flaws. The most disappointing being the stealth aspect. Sometimes the stealth works, but more often than not enemies will see you hiding in a bush wearing a full ghillie suit from over a mile away. This game had promise, but it failed to deliver. Now, on top of all that, they are releasing what should have been out in the first place. All of the bonus content which was just released for PS3 owners (seeing as how the game just came to PS3) is now being re-released to Xbox 360 owners? For those of you who already own this game, don't waste your time or money re-buying or "trading in." However, for those of you who are new to the game, by all means try it out. 2 sniper rilfes, 4 maps and Capture the Flag mode are not incentive enough for me to relinquish my old copy for this one, especially with it being priced at $29.99. City Interactive needs to either shape up or remove themselves from the gaming industry.
Game Hard, My Friends.
a unique shooter
this is by far a unique shooter and very good at one. yes it's not call of duty but i like that. its a different kind of shooter and really good one. i recommend this game for sure
I'm with everybody else on this one. Sniper: Ghost Warrior was a travesty. I got it new for $20, and it wasn't worth even that. I was so excited to play it, remembering the days of Sniper Elite on the PS2, pitting you against all the elements a real sniper would deal with, but once I turned it on, I was bored nearly instantly. The AI are idiots in this game, the gameplay is wonky and at times unresponsive, and the multiplayer feels like Call of Duty online minus any weapon that's not a sniper rifle. Sorry, but the whole concept of two sniper teams clashing together in the middle of a jungle just doesn't cut it for me.
When they announced a PS3 version of this game, I asked myself, "Why? Why would they do that? Couldn't they look at the reviews and know that they shouldn't attempt to disappoint the players of another platform?" Now they're announcing a new edition of this game for the 360, which is basically the same thing, only this time, it's glorified and made to look like a better game because it comes with a steel book. Let me tell you something, folks; it ain't a better game. It's the SAME game. Whether you pay $10 for it used now for $70-80 for it new in the future, you'll be wasting your money. Just don't buy it! Buy something else.
good overall game
even though people said it was a bad game i still enjoyed it and i see most of the people saying it was bad were people saying that call of duty was better
Are you kidding?
I was stoked about the release of this game despite the lack of advertising. Needless to say I found out why there was no "buzz" about this game. City Interactive did a horrible job on this game. The AI was useless and many times they were standing on their heads and could still spot you hidden in brush and still pick you off. The concept is great and it would be fabulous if someone like Epic or Ubisoft would produce a game like this. Otherwise, even if you've not played this game, I would steer clear of this release and spend my $30 on something more useful like a can of toe fungus remover.
this game was just awful the videos for the game made it look like it was going to be amazing! But when i payed it i was so mad it sucked graphics and gameplay was just terrible.
Now the PS3 "exclusive" content will be available on the Xbox 360 for $29.99? I just re-bought the normal edition for $19.99 so now I might have no choice but to trade it in and get this version. Great game despite reviews, solid fun sniping online.
I love this game but does not have that many guns to get more guns get the steelbook edition and the second strike pack.
I bought this game a while ago and I was so excited to get it. I came home and put it in my xbox right away. At he beginning of the game, it looked decent. But as I got more into the game, I started to relize some bad gliches in the game. At several parts of the game, there was be a soldier shooting to your right/left and he would still be HURTING you!! Another glich would be that there was stuff sticking out of buildings like the building where you have to kill the general or whatever in the 1st level. Go to the right side of that building where he was standing at before he escaped and you will see what I am talking about. I do like the sniping features in the game but otherwise it is a bad game. I hope that you find this helpful.
Wouldn't Take it If I was PAYED to.
So the original game was dreadful and short with little to no polish in most of the areas, so instead of dropping the game or making a new one, they just added some weapons and a new game mode.... Wait, what? This has got to be the least logical thing I've seen a game company do and is one of the many ways to bankrupt one. I really hope they don't expect anyone to rush out and waste cash money for things that should have been in the game originally.
